What is Kiwifruit?
Kiwifruit, also known as kiwi or Chinese gooseberry, is a small fruit with brown fuzzy skin and bright green flesh with small black seeds in the center. It is native to China but is now grown in many parts of the world, including New Zealand, Italy, and Chile.
Kiwifruit has a sweet and tangy flavor and is rich in nutrients such as vitamin C, vitamin K, potassium, and dietary fiber. It is often eaten as a snack or used in salads, smoothies, and desserts. Kiwifruit can also be used as a natural meat tenderizer due to the enzyme actinidin found in it.
There are different varieties of kiwifruit, including the most common green kiwi and the less common gold kiwi, which have smooth skin and a sweeter taste than the green variety. Kiwifruit is a popular fruit around the world and is recognized for its nutritional benefits.
